About Us

Since 2003 Jacaranda has been providing permanent recruitment services, placing social workers and social pedagogues from around the world in a wide range of settings. Our commitment is to long-term staffing solutions and the quality of relationship this stability in workforces enables.

We are passionate about the development of social pedagogy. In addition to the services we offer in training, consultancy and field trips, we contribute voluntarily to UK development of social pedagogy. Visit our Social Pedagogy and Develop pages to learn more about our approach and our projects. You will also find case studies on our Download page.

In addition to direct recruitment services, we provide consultancy in reviewing and advising on recruitment processes with “Recruit Care” programme.

The success of your recruitment is yours, ours and that of your service users. This link is present in everything we do. Our reputation is anchored in honesty, sound ethics, clear vision and a commitment to quality. We are ourselves bilingual and have experience of living and working away from the home-country, enabling us to assess candidates referencing our own experiences.

Jacaranda works in partnership with the Centre for Understanding of Social Pedagogy, ThemPra and others in running www.SocialPedagogyUK.com. The website is funded voluntarily by Jacaranda.
